Classic graffiti lettering and experimental typographical forms lie at the heart of street culture and have long inspired designers in many different fields. But graffiti artists, who tend to paint the same letters of their tag again and again, rarely design complete alphabets.
Claudia Walde spent over two years collecting alphabets by 154 artists from thirty countries to show the many different styles and approaches to lettering within the graffiti and street art cultures. All of the artists have roots in graffiti. Some are world renowned such as 123 Klan (Canada), Faith47 (South Africa), and Hera (Germany); others are lesser known or only now starting to emerge.
Each artist received the same instructions: design all twenty- six letters of the Latin alphabet within the limits of a single page of the book. How they approached this task and selected the media with which to express their ideas was entirely up to them, and the results encompass not just street art but sketches, sculpture, digital art, and photography.USD$29.95

Graffiti writing was born in the streets of Philadelphia in the late 1960s. But it was in New York in the early 1970s that it became a full-fledged urban art, gradually taking over the landscape of the city, from its walls to its subway cars. In these years when this art form was emerging, graffiti pioneers laid its foundations through the constant game they played with the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, which they distorted and highlighted in the tags that they painted on walls. In the first section of this book, Woshe recounts the incredible story of the birth of this culture. He then offers us a detailed examination of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, their structure and the ways in which graffiti writers have made them evolve. This study is enriched with a wealth of illustrations and examples of the customizations that artists add to their letters. At the end of the volume, ten of the international scene’s most talented graffiti creators answer Woshe’s questions about matters that include their practice, their relationship with letters and their backgrounds.
Interviews to: BATES (Copenhague, Denmark); DARCO (Paris, France); DEMS (Elche, Spain); GESER (Connecticut USA); JURNE (Oakland, CA,USA); LOKISS (Paris, France); SERCH (Zwolle, The Netherlands); SWET (Copenhague, Denmark); SYE (New Yor, NY,USA); ZOER (Grasse, France).
This is a writing manual, an inspiring collection of ideas and a beautiful book on the world of graffiti, but above all it is a declaration of love for this culture that mixes urban performance and mastery of letters. It includes a map of New York with the sites where the most important graffiti are located.

Welcome to the Museum of Street Art (MoSA). Not within these pages, but while walking the streets, there is a chance you have been here before. The MoSA concept is intuitive, but you might not have noticed it unless you were looking for it.
A MoSA is a phenomenom that occurs when there is a high concentration of both art and local stakeholder support in a particular outdoor area. This combination creates living, breathing outdoor museums in our cities. Entry is free and daily exhibits are managed by the residents, landlords, local government, visitors, and mother nature. These stakeholders alter the exhibition every day with their competing opinions and priorities, which in turn creates one of the most dynamic and meritocratic museums in the world. MoSA explores this concept by photographing these museums in their entirety on one particular day, as a record and snapshot in time.
MoSA locations can be found in dozens of cities around the world, but in this edition, we explore the East Village in New York City on June 23, 2017. The East Village has a long history of supporting the arts and showcases a variety of mediums by a host of local and global artists. Read on to see exactly how we captured the exhibit.
All photographs were shot sequentially in 14 hours starting at 12 AM midnight on June 23, 2017. The area of interest covers 430 acres known as the East Village, located in Manhattan, New York. Its boundaries from West to East are from Bowery/4th Ave. to East River Park. Its boundaries North to South are from 14th St. to Houston St. The editor systematically canvassed this area by bicycle to capture each piece of art. "The Streets" began at Bowery and Houston and were traversed Northward in ascending order from Houston to 14th St. "The Avenues" began on Avenue D and Houston and were traversed Westward from Avenue D to Bowery/4th Ave.USD$28.95

Style Needs No Color works on the notion that excessive colors and flashy techniques should not be used to repair a weak foundation. They believe that artwork should be able to stand alone without unnecessary distractions and therefore SNNC artists restrict their palette to black and white.

Since their first title, the SNNC collaboration has expanded significantly, manifesting itself in a series of noteworthy exhibitions, live-painting shows, installations and streetwear collaborations across the world. SNNC has invited a diverse range of international artists from their growing network to contribute black and white, illustrations, vector graphics, street art and graffiti styles to this impressive publication.USD$29.95
